Brokeback Mountain by Anthea Slade

Brokeback Mountain is a sweeping story that explores the lives of two young men, a ranch hand and a rodeo cowboy, who meet in the summer of 1963 and unexpectedly form an attraction and passion for each other that forges a lifelong connection. After their time on Brokeback Mountain they leave and both meet women and get married but the power of love between them endures through the complications, joys and heartbreak they experience through their lives.

Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal deliver emotionally charged and authentically moving performances in this classic film directed by Ang Lee and written by Annie Proulx.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
